I personnally don't see this as much of a big deal,
probably becuase I'm from the Information Technology side
of things where I have an EXTREMELY DEEP UNDERSTANDING of
the POWER of modern computing systems that can data-mine,
do fuzzy-logic based digging, pattern matching, correlation,
charting, graphing and even advanced prediction and simulation.
With enough computer horsepower the WHOLE WORLD can be fully bugged,
voice-recognized, speech-to-text'ed, keyboarding-and-writing-style
analyzed, digitally fingerprinted and Digital DNA sampled,
face-and-gait recognized, graphics and network card
microcode malware bugged and otherwise watched over
like a hawk 24/7/365 all completely AUTOMATED with
nary a human in sight!
It's all about CPU processors, RAM memory and
Hard Disk/Flash Drive space. If you got enough
dough to spend, you can watch over ANYBODY
AND EVERYBODY WITHIN ANY AND EVERY COUNTRY!
You can't even be sure that the CPU's (Central Processing Unit)
on your smart phone is compromised! The ONLY WAY to do that
is a technique called "Chip Shaving" where I slice a chip
down layer by layer and IMAGE each layer to build up a final
chip mask which can THEN be profiled by microcircuit pathway
analyzers to ensure no secret fractal antennae and radio
transmitters are built into the chip itself and that no
secret DDNS Server (Dynamic Domain Name Service) will
redirect your voice calls and emails to a Man-in-the-Middle
server to be read on a moment's whim.
I can assure YOU ALL that ONLY the open source version
of the SuperSPARC/ULTRASparc CPU processor masks have
been fully vetted on our end for secret bugs and gateways.
EVERYTHING ELSE such AMD, Intel, TI, ARM, Snapdragon and
all those other chips MIGHT HAVE "BackDoors" put in
by their designers OR the circuit manufacturers (OR BOTH!)
for NEFARIOUS PURPOSES!
YOu're ALL SCREWED no matter what and on a REALISTIC BASIS
it REALLY DOES NOT MATTER AT ALL WHAT YOU THINK OR DO because
on ALSO A REALISTIC BASIS, y'all is bringing a two inch knife
to a MACHINE GUN AND BAZOOKA FIGHT!
Me? I got smart and built myself the computing equivalent
of a 250 MEGATON NUKE....as I like saying ..... TRY ME!
